Next-Gen 101: A How-To for Whole-Exome Sequencing Research
Wednesday, September 28, 2011


The National Human Genome Research Institute Intramural Research Program is pleased to announce that we will host a full day course to help orient researchers to the new technique of exome sequencing. This course will serve to introduce participants to the technical basis of the sequencing, approaches to filtering exome sequence results for both inherited and somatic genetic disorders, the use of software tools to analyze data, approaches to clinical annotation of exomes, and informed consent and IRB considerations. The speakers will use actual datasets and provide practical real-world examples of projects to illustrate the various approaches one can use to exploit this powerful technology, its strengths and limitations, and the clinical and human subjects implications of the work. The course will be held on the NIH Campus in the Natcher Auditorium (Building 45).

The demand for this course has greatly exceeded capacity, so we are no longer accepting registrations. However, the video feed will be available through CIT at: http://videocast.nih.gov/summary.asp?live=10613
